This Ever-Popular And Classic 1965 Ford Mustang Is Calling Your Name Do you hear it? And that’s just the engine roaring. What makes a collectible car a collectible? Some believe that it must have been produced in limited amounts to make it exclusive. That makes sense, as smaller numbers translate to more value and perhaps even more demand. If that’s the case, how can we explain the immense popularity of the 1965 then and now, as a collectible item. Now’s your chance to get your hands on one and let the car do the talking.

Do you own a classic Ferrari 250? Are you looking for the perfect personalized number plate? Your luck might be in, as the UK’s DVLA is about to put ‘250 S’ up for sale. It will hit the block tomorrow at the 17 September autumn auction.

The reserve is £2,500 ($3,103), which might seem like a lot for registration plate, but hold up. A similar plate, ’25 O’, bought for a 250 Short Wheelbase, became the highest-priced personal plate sold by the DVLA in 2014, hammering for £400,000 ($496,610).

The chances are, however, that if you’re the recent purchaser of a Ferrari 250, £400,000 isn’t going to seem like an awful lot. The potential with this new plate is huge – even the DVLA isn’t sure how high it will go.

Video: Granddad Sold Ferrari 250 GTO For $9,500, Now It’s $70M A man tells the story of his grandfather’s Ferrari 250 GTO. The Ferrari 250 GTO needs little to no introduction to most car enthusiasts. There are entire books written about the GTO and its racing achievements. Today, it is not unusual to see these vehicles with eight-figure asking prices. That just goes to show how much the value of a Ferrari 250 GTO has skyrocketed. Nevertheless, there is still some uncertainty about how many GTOs were actually built. The number falls between 36 and 39, depending on if you count the four-liter versions.

“While we have high expectations for every one of our 1,250 lots on offer, there’s no question the personalized registration ‘250 S’ could be of particular significance for those collectors of ultra-rare Ferraris out there. As for its value, we cannot predict what it will fetch.”

Getting into specifics, the 250 S is the first of many 250-badged Ferraris built in the 50s and 60s. It first raced at the 1952 Mille Miglia and then at Le Mans. The name ‘250’ came from the size of the engine, divided by the number of cylinders. In this case, it’s a 3.0-liter 12-cylinder, so that’s 3,000cc divided by 12 – 250.

There are a couple of other Ferrari-themed plates up for grabs, too. Got a 488 Pista or F8 Tributo that’s missing a little something? Fear not. ‘P115 TAA’ and ‘T218 UTO’ are available. They’re a bit more attainable, each with £250 ($310) price tags. They, along with ‘250 S’ will be among some 1,250 plates up for sale.
